Iraq: Who did the US military massacre near Najaf?

02-02-2007 21:22

Massacre near Najaf
Whether the slaughter outside Najaf was inflicted on a cult, anti-government tribesmen or a combination of both, it demonstrates that the illegal American presence in Iraq can only be continued by repression and indiscriminate killing in every part of the country. The scale of the massacre is a warning of what is being prepared as US operations are stepped up in Baghdad under Bush’s planned “surge”.

On This Day 1972: Bloody Sunday, Derry, N. Ireland

31-01-2007 01:29

British Justice. Bloody Sunday, Derry, Jan 1972. That was then.
A civil rights rights march by 15,000 Irish Catholics in the city of Derry was attacked by members of the British paratroop regiment. Under direct orders to "get some kills", the British soldiers opened fire on unarmed demonstrators, killing thirteen including six children. Five of the dead had been shot in the back. One demonstrator was shot twice in the back as he lay wounded on the ground. Another was shot at close range in the face. There was also evidence to suggest that some soldiers had used modified "dum dum" bullets that create a larger wound with greater blood loss and trauma.
